Kirchner Impact Foundation (KIF), is a non-profit organization that serves as one of the “returning” arms of Kirchner Group. Another aspect of their return activities is the Philanthropic activities via the Christopher Douglas Hidden Angel Foundation.
KIF harnesses the positive power of enterprise to make a difference in addressing some of the most important issues of today and reflects our belief that every business should contribute to a positive human future.
Through the Kirchner Impact Model the foundation promotes capital efficiency and sustainable enterprises. KIF activities aim to generate a measurable, social and/or environmental benefit, primarily across four sectors: Agriculture/Food, Health/Life Science, Energy/Resources and Education.
Our Kirchner Impact Model includes three integrated components of contribution:
- Head: sharing the benefit of decades of creating solutions and building enterprises
- Hip: providing essential financial resources
- Heart: unwavering commitment to successful execution, supported by the passion and desire to make a difference
We gratefully acknowledge the many non-family members who selflessly contribute to the Foundation through significant contributions of time and energy.
Kirchner Group was founded in 1985 as a boutique advisory firm and today operates various subsidiaries, providing advisory services (M&A, assessments, diligence) and operational support (interim management, workouts, turnarounds) as well as asset management (dedicated, portfolio optimization) – all leveraging a proprietary approach that dovetails domain and process expertise.
Throughout the decades Kirchner Group has been internationally recognized for its unique business model centered around creating value while promoting values: “earning while returning”. The firm has also established a reputation for building and rebuilding important business and social paradigms based on its deep entrepreneurial orientation.
Kirchner Group’s clients and partners include early stage to mid-market companies, venture capital and private equity firms as well as family offices and some of the world’s largest insurance companies, commercial banks and institutional investors. www.kirchnergroup.comStay up to date on our initiatives and activities by following us on LinkedIn.
